I found this little tidbit on the web or facebook. But I thought it was kind of handy to have around. This past year I was diagnosed with diabetes and I am trying my best to treat it with healthy eating. I hate measuring and this whole thing is a trial and error. But this is part of being the alive plan. Any great ideas are welcome!
I know most of what I have to do. Again, it is doing it! Water, exercise, etc. But give me some stress and bring on the chocolate. I have changed that a bit. Not quite doing celery instead yet. But little by little.
A few years ago, I was asked what was I going to do with all my books and articles, papers, computer files that I have saved all these years. What was I going to do with them if I wasn’t using them? Yes, I was mad at first but they were not wrong. They were only collecting dust on the shelves and hogging several gigs on my computer. I also said to myself that I have studied all these books. I have saved all these interesting articles. But I also enjoy sharing my knowledge with others. I love when someone has a question and I know just know what book or article to find it in. Brings me joy.
A pattern is a form of consistency. Intellectually I know that this is the way to getting things done successfully. However, Why is it that I don’t stay with an exercise program, stay on my food plan, a schedule, my vitamins…whatever.
I even picked the color orange, because I react to it like nails on a chalkboard. Facing my resistance to consistency, what is stopping me from so many things. I am managing to sit my butt down in this chair and type. So this is a stop. I can make excuses with the best of them. I just lost a child, I should just stay on my couch and vegetate, feel sorry for myself. I can justify this one forever. I heard myself start the scenario in my head and I got up off the couch and headed for the keyboard. I know I am not alone on this one. You find yourself doing this too? What are you going to do to change this for yourself? Anxious to hear from you on this. I made a promise to myself that I am going to participate and be alive this year. I have too much to do.
